KISTERS 3DViewStation offers a collaborative and complete solution
Visualization reveals planning errors at an early stage, avoiding later costs
Sacramento, CA – October 1, 2021 – Stakeholders involved in cross-company projects know that a planning error discovered too late can completely disrupt a planned deployment and generate significant costs. KISTERS 3DViewStation addresses this challenge with its common visualization platform, often used for business-to-business planning of projects and trades for factory designs.
âWhen initially loading all 3D models in a global layout, many conflicts are detected in advance,â said Jim Eardly, US sales manager for KISTERS. “It has become an integral part of our work, especially when space is very limited in the design of the plant.”
Traditionally, building information modeling (BIM) and 3D planning have been the preserve of large architectural and planning offices. However, factory engineers from various industries also use 3D technologies and have long struggled with spontaneous changes of individual partners in a project that can have far-reaching consequences. In order to represent such projects reliably and keep the data up to date, a common visualization platform is a great advantage, especially when several companies are collaborating on a project.
More and more companies are taking advantage of this technological advantage, including an international technology group for factories, systems, equipment and services, as well as its partners. âWith the 3DViewStation WebViewer, all stakeholders benefit from the model-based way of working,â noted Eardly. âThose affected can even use the viewer directly on site without installation effort and without administrator rights. It is also easily accessible via mobile devices. Anyone can orient themselves intuitively without tedious training. “
The KISTERS 3DViewStation is particularly distinguished by its well respected performance and high level of security, thanks to server-side rendering.
The KISTERS 3DViewStation is not only available in the group as a desktop, web and mobile app, but also as a VR app. Virtual reality makes the 3D factory model tangible for everyone involved. Since planners take into account the dimensions of a room, the space an employee will have available when maneuvering in the plant area and the minimum distance between structural steel members, taking into account the supporting beams. medium, this information can be transmitted much better with the help of virtual reality.
Overall, 3DViewStation has been successful for the past four years in modern and efficient facility planning. By implementing digital 3D workflows, resources are conserved compared to conventional engineering processes, planning times per project are shortened, and savings potential is dramatically increased.
Known for its modern user interface, high performance visualization, advanced analysis and integration capabilities into major systems, 3DViewStation comes with current and mature importers for a wide range of 3D and 2D formats including Catia, NX , Creo, SolidWorks, SolidEdge, Inventor, Revit, JT, 3D-PDF, STEP, DWG, DXF, DWF, MS Office and many more.
